with you all tomorrow night. it's going to be great. thanks for staying with us for the next hour. four years ago tonight, it was actually the night after the '08 presidential election. we voted november 4th. we vote november 6th this time. so november 5th was the night after barack obama had just walloped john mccain in that year's presidential election. you remember the electoral college map. the total 365 electoral votes for obama and only 173 for john mccain. barack obama won that presidential election with almost 100 electoral votes to spare. after that emotional victory on this night four years ago, the country started to appreciate what had just happened in that historic election toward what was going to happen next. now that we had barack obama as not just a candidate or as the winner, but as the next president, as the successor of two terms of george bush. >> elections have consequences. elections are not just the end of the campaign. the concession speech,s victory speech, these are the sounds of a starting pistol for what now begin. it's not just about winning a contest. we'r
us the truth even when it's hard. i wanted a president driven not by politics or which way the wind is blowing but by the struggles, hopes and dreams of all americans. the more i thought about it, the more i knew in my heart that i was describing barack. i knew he could be that president, and for four years that's exactly what he's done. he has stayed true to himself and with your help, he's worked day after day to make this country better to move it forward. he's rescued our economy from the brink of collapse, saved the auto industry. [ applause ] he's passed historic health reform, ended the war in iraq. he's fought so women get equal pay and students can afford college. [ applause ] he's fought for our seniors so they can retire with dignity and our veterans so that they can get the benefits they earned and the respect they deserve. for four years barack has been fighting to give every single one of us a fair shot at that great american dream no matter what we look like or where we come from or who we love. [ applause ] for four years we have all seen what i've seen for the past
you need to stay up with us to watch it all happen tomorrow. tomorrow is a big day. your country needs you. plan ahead. plan tonight. it's going to take a long time. we will be back at 6:00 eastern tomorrow night for election night coverage. now it's time "the last word" with lawrence o'donnell. have a really, really, really good night. pass tad, people. pasta. >>> just eight hours until the polls open on the east coast. and in this hour we expect to see the last campaign event for president barack obama. he will be joined by first lady michelle obama and you'll see it here live. it will be the president's last speech in what has been a very, very long campaign. >> 24 hours to go. >> only one day left. >> it is here. >> and it is on. >> oh, my goodness! yes! >> where does this race stand. >> i mean what i say and i say what i mean. >> talk is cheap. >> look to the record. >> i said i would repeal don't ask don't tell. we repealed it. >> talk is cheap. look to the record. >> welcome home. >> now is the time to deliver on health care. >> all men and women are created equal. >> same sex c
've got chuck todd joining us and howard fineman. i have to give you some anecdotal information which has given me good information. i have a brother charlie who always votes for the winner. he called me an hour ago and said it's obama. because that's who he's going to vote for. don't laugh, chuck. when you get an absolute provable leading indicator you will never let it go either. so i've got one. i've looked at all the numbers today. all the numbers seem to point to a mild victory for obama. none seem to point for a victory for romney. what do you know so far? >> i can tell you the body language of the campaign, talking to the two campaigns. the obama folks don't think they're trailing in a single battleground state and this is the day before the election. that's not to say they think they win every one of the nine battlegrounds if you include north carolina in that larger nine. that's how confident they are. that's how much they believe that they have done enough of what i would call the building the flood walls, if you will, with the early vote and the absentee. and what their turn in

york city, and with us onset here at democracy plaza. we have msnbc contributor and former senior strategist from the mccain/palin campaign, steve schmidt? >> coming attraction. >> good tease. >> he's down in south florida. we also have mark haleprin, senior political analyst, and look at this, this is huge. >> we have michael steele. >> michael steele here. >> oh, my gosh. >> it's a great way to start. >> wow. >> great way to start six hours of coverage. >> thank you. >> we also have john heilemann, he's in chicago. >> yes, we do. >> do we have john heilemann. >> great. that's great. >> this is a fun game. >> throw out a name and see if they're here. >> we started this really well. >> you know, in major league baseball, t.j., getting 4 out of 5 right, you would be -- >> that's pretty good. >> it'll get you fired on election day. hey, everybody let's vote. fire t.j. okay. here we go. mika, the "new york times" talks about now it goes to the voters state-by-state, "usa today" talks about decision time. today's a huge day? >> yes, people are choosing on the direction of the country.
start tonight with this. here is my deal tonight. i want you watching us here all through the night but before you get settled, settle something really important. vote. get out there, get to the polls, and cast your ballot. then come back here, get some pizza or whatever you like for happy food and stick with us all night. i love election night. it's crisp, it's true, it separates the talk from the reality, it's compelling, it's dramatic, and nothing is better than a good concession speech. nothing is more exciting than getting that big checkmark next to the face that tells you the deed is done. tonight i urge my fellow voters to get ready, fasten your seat belts, say a prayer for our country and let's see who's got it and who doesn't. who is going to lead us deeper into the 21st century and who is heading for the sidelines. we've got a great lineup of our top people tonight. the first of our "hardball" all-stars nbc political director chuck todd and "the huffington post's" howard fineman. of course, what am i going to say? here we are. this is one of those nights you don't need a s
today is i think those of us who are democrats, and i am, would be having a much calmer day if it wasn't for our concerns about voter suppression. the only way that they win if they win is going to be because we've had voters standing in line for seven or eight hours in florida. we've had the secretary of state of ohio making last-minute decisions that are very questionable. you know, i heard our colleague andrea mitchell today call these lines to vote a poll tax and that's what we should all be talking about. if it was not for their efforts to suppress our vote, we would be sipping tea and talking about cricket today, but these things concern me and i think we're going to have a conversation after, i hope, the president is re-elected about how to guarantee people equal protection of their voting rights. >> it is absolutely staggering. joining us now is professor michael eric dyson who is in chicago. professor dyson, messrs. romney and ryan suggest re-electing the president will threaten the judeo-christian foundations of america, as you know, but isn't the truth that if we don't re-el
talk show host and msnbc contributor michael skirmonissh and steve dees is back with us. steve and keith, no fighting today. i'm not in the mood. everyone is tense. we want to know what's going to happen. the lady has put down her heel. i'm not playing with you. let's me start with michael here. michael, let's talk strategy for team romney going into pennsylvania. that is your home state. i believe no one knows it better. what do you make of this last-minute move? >> i understand it only if they think that they're not going to win ohio, and therefore, you got to do something like throw a hail mary in pennsylvania. i'll be really surprised if they can win this state, which no gop presidential candidate has done since '88. my gut tells me it's somewhere between a three and a five-point obama victory in pennsylvania. >> mark, let me bring you in. you're in ohio. you heard michael say very clearly romney is in pennsylvania because they are not not sure about ohio or they are sure that they've lost it. >> an ohio poll done by university of cincinnati came out yesterday. it's the las
last campaign. >> this is a pretty emotional time for us because this is the final event of my husband's final campaign. >> in iowa last night, the place where it all began, the first couple held an extended embrace at the end of a day that saw president obama on the stump with jay-z and bruce springsteen, he seemed at peace, closing one chapter of his political life. >> it all comes down to you. it's out of my hands now. it's in yours. >> now, of course, it is just down to the ballots. chris, let's talk about the mood. i mean we are going to prognosticate, we have been prognosticating about how tight this thing is. >> never made a prediction the whole year and i have no idea. >> some people have. we don't know what's going to happen. judging by the behavior of both candidates on the stump yesterday, you know, how do you think each campaign really truly is feeling. i will read an excerpt from john heilemann following romney and has been on the trail with him, writes when romney took to the podium he didn't seem jazzed off pumped or juiced instead he came across as subdued low of voice
ohio will have the irregularities ties to put us i the late night or beyond. if mitt romney doesn't win virginia there's a path but not a great one. >> which counties to both of you, where in virginia would you be looking to lynchburg? down to the tiedwater area, norfo norfolk? >> can i -- >> there are swin counties but virginia is a case where swing counties and also counties where one side or the other must run up a big score. if they're going to have a chance to win. the counties outside washington, around washington, are the most important in terms of the swings. >> and also for president obama -- i was going to say, chris cizilla. >> yeah. >> the richmond area, richmond city is very important for president obama to run up big returns. >> president obama, northern virginia, richmond city, hampton roads, large african-american population. i would say mark is exactly right in terms of virginia is a battleground all across the state. two counties that i keep an eye on, maybe just because they're close to where i live, but prince william and louden, these are suburban washington, d.c. c
of thumb, we don't use polls on voting day, so we don't skew the electorate. we know this race is going to be close. all eyes are on the battlegrounds. we get the first results in four hours when polls close in virginia. 30 minutes later ohio closes followed by florida, new hampshire and pennsylvania at 8:00 eastern. colorado and wisconsin at 9:00, nevada and iowa where this all started close at 10:00. i already hit the polls this morning with krystal. i wonder if we canceled each other out? >> we look so happy. >> toure took his son with him before work. steve, we shipped him out to battleground virginia so he can cast an aabsentee ballot yesterday before he left. as for the candidates, obama is the first president ever to do early voting. mitt romney was at the polls this morning in massachusetts in an 11th hour decision he added two stops today. they're not official rallies but are billed as him thanking supporters. read into what you'd like. he's heading to pittsburgh right now and was in ohio earlier at the same time joe biden was there. you can see air force 2 sneak in behind the
've come back to iowa one more time to ask for your vote. i came back to ask you to help us finish what we've started. because this is where our movement for change began. thank you. right here. right behind these bleachers is the building that was home to our iowa headquarters of 2008. in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. today our businesses created 5.5 million new jobs. the auto industry is back, home values are on the rise. we're less dependent on foreign oil than any time in the last 20 years. we've dealt with the production of clean energy because of the service and sacrifice of our brave men and women in uniform, the war in iraq is over. the war in afghanistan has ended. al qaeda is on the run. osama bin laden is dead. >> president obama is now finished campaigning, he's already voted and will spend today at home in chicago where we're told he'll play some hoops with his friends. mr. romney plans to vote in massachusetts before he makes one final trip to ohio and to pennsylvania. some of the very last campaigning took pl
